    Try to update nokia storage check by the link I provided. And if that does not solve try a soft reset :)

    hold down the volume down + lock button until your phone vibrates and restart itself , this wont erase any of your data
    btw I never use storage check , it always show incorrect data , it seems very buggy to me , the sock phone storage(introduced with gdr3 update) seems to work good for me.

    I was hoping to finally see this problem go away with gdr3. Don't tell me we are STILL battling with the other storage issue.

    First: Do you have any problems? Cant you install Appy anymore?
    Second: Do you use Onedrive (auto-upload pics...)? If yes -> turn it off
    Also after installing big games, some files remain in the other folder.

    Or maybe its all wrong, thats why i asked "do you have any problems?" ! Memory is there to be filled up.

    I read that just updating your phone to GDR3/Black can not always help you other storage, if its already full. You need to do a hard reset after updating to Black to make it work as it should.

    There's a thread here : other storage problem. Search for it by swiping right and clicking on search forums. There I've explained what exactly is taking up this storage, I'd do a big article based on my long experiments, but after 2 months when I'd be free. You can read that post there, it'd set your mind at peace.

    The other storage isn't a problem really. I figured it out. WP caches almost everything intot that storage so you get a blazing fast os. Try this: delete a picture with pocket file manager or some other app. Quickly come back to gallery and open that pic. It'd be there, you can zoom in into it even, it'd stay there till WP realises it is gone. You cant open it with any app, because the pic isn't there, but it had been cached already which takes up lot of space. So with music+videos. And your home screen tiles, all that is cached, and takes a huge amount of space. In return it gives you super fast speeds :)

    I know that , our desktop work's the same way , when you develop an app you have to open an path where the files should be saved (here temp files goes either to memory/ram )and it's up to developer if he want to de-allocate the free space , this is all related to pointers

    yeah. only that here the end user doesn't know at all what is going on inside the others storage. You know, the song you're playing, its also cached in the others storage...

    ever got duplicates ? I got lots of them. Do one thing, figure out (by looking in the playlist order) which one is playing, then delete the others. The song would continue playing. Then stop music, come back and play it again, it wont play, it would say "sorry we cant play this file", in short, deleting even a single copy of the song deletes the original file, but the song keeps on playing from the cache.

    that's space isn't always meant to be cleared, i have about 40mb of that, and it varies from time to time. Dont worry about it :). Though you can also go into phone storage (in settings) and click on the phone storage bar, then on temporary files, and then click clear. Then check after a minute.
